Well, they do not know anything about it, that is for sure, but it can be
done. There is a guy who I am going to try and get by telephone who uses
Linux on my ISP. It is the policy of most ISPs, I have found, they do not
wnat to support Linux because there are too many windoze users, not cost
effecient to train someone to do that, and not many of us Linux wannabees.
